Easel Card Challenge

The challenge this week at Pile it On is to make an easel card. For my card, I used another of Isabella's Sketchbook digital images. Love, love, love her beautiful images!! This little sweetie was colored with Copics. My DP is digital, printed on my home printer, from Designer Digitals and the gingham is paper I had left over from my Creative Memories consultant days. A Martha Stewart border punch and oval and square Nestabilities were also used. The flourish on the bottom panel is by Boss Kut, flowers by Prima and a silver-toned bead cap. The edges were sponged with Creamy Caramel ink and I don't have a clue where the lace came from.

Here's a close up of the little sweetie. Isn't she adorable?

In the spirit of piling it on, my easel card is being entered into the following challenges:
Simple Doodles - Add Some Layers
Caardvarks - Lacy Days
Crafty Creations - Anything Goes
Stamp Something - Pink Somethings
For Fun Challenges - Anything Goes
Twisted Thursdays - Have Fun and Anything Goes
Papertake Weekly - It's Fill Your Boots Time (Open Challenge)
Meljen's Designs - Anything Goes
Just Us Girls - Sketch
One Stitch at a Time - Anything Goes
Stamptacular Sunday Challenge - Sugar & Spice (a girly card)
Simon Says Stamp - It's So Distressing
Crafty Pad - Lace and Bows

As always, thanks so much for stopping by and for the lovely comments. Be sure to stop by Pile it On to see the awesome easel cards the rest of the design team has come up with!
